    Have recently experimented with plasti dipping the silver door trim. Utilized the Matte Black followed up by the Violet Metalizer and Glossifier coats.
    For the Radio Bezel it is carbon vinyl on the outskirts and glossy vinyl over the center section.

    I will be looking to custom the longer silver panel on the dash at some point as well.
    This is a great look.

    Revamped some of the interior panels; can't decide. Went with plasti dip and glossifier and then added the carbon fiber vinyl and silver pin stripe. Click image for larger version.

    I dipped my interior red, after vinyl wrap didnt go to well. Going to sticker bomb the rest. How did u get the long pieces of trim off? Was it hard? And did the ac controls separate from the trim?

    There is a DIY on how to remove trim pieces somewhere. And yes, the trim just came off over the knobs.

    Thanks for adding pics everyone. Hopefully this will help out other members with the same thoughts I had and come up with ideas.

    Btw I noticed the other day when I wiped the plastidip with armor all it removed some of the rubbery feeling. You can still tell its dip but its smoother. Just an fyi I guess

    I really like the red around the stereo/vents. is that just the regular red plasti-dip rattle can?

    Thanks, and yea i did a couple coats of black plasti dip underneath so it would be so bright. But if u want it to be more bright u could use white pasti dip underneath the red and then spray red coats on top. Its better to spray down a base color before an actual color cause it lays down a little differently

    no i think that's a great color right there. looks like factory to me. does it match the threading in the seats pretty well?

    Its identical. I did 3-4 coats of black until it was nice and solid, then i did lots or red until texture and color was achieved. It took about 2 hours but if u able to do in garage then put it in sun to dry u can do it in less then hour
